Eclipse Newsletter - 2020.18.06

Eclipse IDE Evolution


Editor's Note

With the Eclipse IDE 2020-06 simultaneous release this month, we wanted to focus our newsletter on articles that explore different aspects of the Eclipse desktop IDE evolution and what those advancements mean for developers.
As you’ll see in our article summary below, our community authors have approached the topic from two main perspectives — how IDE features and functionality are evolving and how developers are evolving the way they use the IDE.

Spotlight Articles

Explore this month’s spotlight articles:

  • The Eclipse IDE community highlights some of the new and noteworthy features in the Eclipse IDE 2020-06 release.
  • Patrick Paulin explains how to create the technical infrastructure required to integrate the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) with backend microservices.
  • Ed Merks introduces the Eclipse JustJ project, which will provide fully functional Java runtime packages for redistribution in the Eclipse IDE 2020-09 release.
